Illustration Friday "Pretend" AND other progress

There was this 'very-possibly-homeless' woman across the street from my apartment who randomly received pink roses from a girl in a car. She let her little dog smell them first. The moment was so striking I had to capture the moment in my sketchbook.

I had some serious struggles getting the texture for the bricks. Photoshop kept freezing up every time I used a dry brush. It took me about an hour to paint them in. Enjoy!

Also, here's some progress...

I like your final rose image, and the way you zoomed in on it.
As for Photoshop, it can try your patience a bit, that's for sure.
